Marine encounters, 13 September 2019

Today we embarked on an adventure with a little sea breeze and swell. Not long after we launched, we spotted our first sighting of the morning, A Southern right whale and her juvenile, they were thoroughly enjoying the waves and the youngster was rolling around in the surf. Leaving this mum and young one behind, we headed off to Slashfin and were lucky enough to spot  a Bronze whaler shark and a the famous Great white shark circling the boat. After spending some time with these beautiful creatures, we set off and had another fantastic encounter with a mother Southern right whale and her young one, who were very calm and relaxed. Onwards to see the seals of Geyser rock! These animals are always a delight to watch, some surfing the waves while others baking in the sunshine and of course others that just love showing off near the boat. Our second trip of the day was just as exciting, with out guests being able to see Southern right whales, our seals as well as some African penguins out on a fishing expedition. We had some lovely sightings of 3 of our Marine Big 5 today as well as some great seabird activity out on our scenic oceanic adventure.
